Wales has been named in the top 10 countries to visit by one of the planet’s leading guide books thanks to its “fascinating history , incredible landscapes and unique culture “.

Travel and adventure guru Rough Guides has placed Wales at number eight in its 2016 list, and calls our country “one of the finest natural playgrounds in Europe”.

The latest coup comes two years after readers of the Rough Guides were overawed by “some great mountain ranges, lush valleys, a ragged coastline and ancient castles”, as they put Wales top of their 2014 list of top countries in the world to visit.

‘These are exciting times for Wales’

In the 2016 entry, it is explained how Wales is still underestimated by many, and often overshadowed by its neighbours.

It goes on: “But these are exciting times for Wales – the country is winning accolades for its extraordinary beauty and remarkably preserved historical sites.

“Culture vultures, foodies, festival junkies, adventurers, hikers and extreme sports enthusiasts will be spellbound here, be it amid the rugged peaks of Snowdonia , on the sandy beaches of the Gower Peninsula or in the quaint rural towns and villages.”The entry also highlights the Year of Adventure being celebrated in 2016.

The entry also highlights the Year of Adventure being celebrated in 2016.

Announced by the Welsh Government back in April last year, the initiative will attempt to expand the tourism trade by promoting Wales as the world’s capital of adventure tourism.
